Cult 1980s and 90s children's TV show Knightmare has returned to Norwich.
The fantasy gameshow was a hit with older children and teenagers between 1987 and 1994, and was filmed at the Anglia Television studios in Agricultural Plain, Norwich.
The show has retained a huge online following and this week has returned to the city.
Filming of Knightmare concluded at Epic Studios, in Magdalen Street, today ahead of its inclusion in a project being run by YouTube.
The video sharing website is hosting a ‘Geek Week’ between Sunday, August 4 and Saturday, August 10.
The remake of the Knightmare episode will feature on YouTube during Geek Week and the show’s creator, Tim Child, who has directed the episode, is hoping it could lead to a new lease of life for the show.
